The Lizard to be Spidey 4’s One and Only Villain? Hopefully.

10 Comments

Looks like the Spidey 4 rumor train is moving at full speed now, what with the Raimster set to start directing this thing soon for a 2011 release. We already know that actor Dylan Baker has confirmed that his character, Spidey’s one-armed professor Curt Connors will return for Spidey 4, but we don’t know in what capacity — another limited cameo, or something more? According to the guys at MarketSaw, it’s definitely something more.

Here’s what they said:

We all pretty much knew that either The Lizard and/or Carnage would be in this movie and now we have word that it will be The Lizard ONLY. No multiple villains. Again, strong source here. Of course, things could change – but it is highly doubtful.

This is definitely good news, especially for everyone who thought having no less than three villains in the last Spidey film was a tad too much (which might just be everyone). One villain will allow for more character development, both in Peter Parker’s life and in Curt Connors’ ala the excellent “Spider-Man 2″.

Here’s hoping MarketSaw’s source is, indeed, strong and correct.

Here, Spidey, Spidey...

    The second picture of Lizardman sucks!

    I love Spiderman 90s cartoon with added 3d effect. It was action packed.

      It’s “The Lizard,” man, not Lizardman. LOL. It’s a still from The Spectacular Spiderman animated series, which I think is amazing, and by far the best Spidey toon yet. The art does take some getting used to and DEFINITELY looks better in motion than in stills. It’s simplistic style is awesome for the crazy action they do, but doesn’t look so great standing still. I’m excited as Dylan Baker was great in “Trick ‘R Treat,” and I can’t wait to see what he brings to Connors now that he has time to play with the character. I just don’t want him to be a silent, killing machine, I want him to talk, and I want him to progressively get to that point where the reptile part has taken over his thinking and he wants to remake the city in his image.

    The Lizard won’t be the only villain. He’ll be a side villain with the main one being Morbious, Electro or Kraven.

    I am so glad Dylan Baker is comeing back. I have been waiting since the First movie came out to see the Lizard and I ahope it can be done. Continuing the Mentor/ student theme from the first two films will be nice to see. Just don’t try to do Carnage!
